A back-to-school assignment has Willa scrambling in this seventh book of a chapter book series inspired by Marguerite Henry’s Misty of Chincoteague.
Willa just started school again and everyone in her class has come up with clever ideas for their back-to-school projects. Even her best friends Lena and Sarah are preparing something different: a Double-Dutch demonstration. At first Willa thinks her father’s fabulous raspberry torte will be perfect, but at the last minute, the raspberries don’t cooperate! Just in the nick of time she realizes the best idea is in her own barnyard: Starbuck! She’ll show her class how to groom him, something she’s an expert at!
